I also bought one a little while ago, and that's exactly how I carry.

Do you carry cocked and locked, if so, does the safety strap work with the hammer back?

I do not carry this one cocked and locked.  This holster would be quite awkward to carry it that way.  I cannot recommend it for Condition 1 carry.  I can recommend it for an awesome looking OC.


By "awkward" I infer you believe it's possible.  If possible can you show a photo of the pistol holstered that way?  What makes it awkward?

Possible yes,  the strap gets in the way of the draw.  I’ll take a pic later when home.  Didn’t take the bike today so don’t have this one on.

Pics cocked and locked as requested.  Just doesn’t sit right, but certainly doable.  I tried the draw, and it really wasn’t bad.  I still don’t think this is the holster for that, but it could be modified to be so.  Sorry about the delay, my wife met me with a drink when I got home yesterday, and I don’t handle the guns while drinking as a rule.

It looks like you could slide the retention strap forward a little to clear the hammer. I agree, it does look "awkward."

Thanks for the pics.  I've been looking for a leather holster with thumb break -- I don't want to end up like the dancing FBI agent from a year ago (not that I dance or am an FBI agent).  The CZ 82 is not drop safe so the retention strap makes sense.  Your rig seems like the closest match to my goals.  I guess I should just go out and buy the holster and figure out if the awkwardness you note is worth the hassle.

You know the 82 has been described here as having the best DA trigger by a lot of people.  I’m happy carrying DA/SA. 

I don’t like the retention cocked and locked.  It wants the trigger down to keep the gun from moving around in the holster.  But I carry riding, so I’m pickier.
